Idea - Near bodies of water (oceans, lakes, rivers) where unwanted algae blooms flourish seasonally, build oil-producing manufacturing facilities which utilize algae that is deliberately produced in or near those facilities as a raw material resource.

Run these manufacturing facilities 24/7 as regular oil-producing operations and where algae is deliberately grown and then used to manufacture oil, and where the spent algae is used to produce marketable fertilizers. Then, when unwanted algae blooms appear in the adjacent bodies of water, continuously siphon off the algae-infested water, strain the unwanted algae out, return the clean water to the adjacent water body, and then "add" that "strained and unwanted algae" to the 24/7 manufacturing operations that already depend on algae ...

Initial design consideration calls for a manually pumped, separating flush toilet similar to a modified manual marine toilet. Subsequent iterations may be suitable for Pour-flush toilets of the seated and squat-plate types.

Operation of the flush mechanism initially pumps flush water to impart turbulent motion to feces in the toilet, further operation of the mechanism suctions the toilet contents through an static mixing chamber and Joker-valve and into the main pump body. The return stroke forces the contents of the main pump body through a second static mixing chamber and Joker-valve, then into a Self Stirring Mesophilic Anaerobic Reactor.

The Self Stirring Mesophilic Anaerobic Reactor consists of a 2-chambered vessel, of equal portions connected at the bottom in such a manner ...

1) As already described in 2017 and 2018 entry a body sliding on an inclined plane can be supported by a thread or support perfectly parallel to the horizontal.The weight of a body that is unsupported even at the position of rest by this mechanism is maximum for a plane of inclination 45°as explained mathematically in preprint manuscript doi:10.5281/zenodo.439108 causing compression of spacetime below and expansion of space time above the supporting surface.Here technical modification is made to support the body by a perfectly horizontal thread or support on a plane of increased inclination by way of pressure by an elastic recoil force.

2) The modification has weight of body sliding on inclined plane IP1 and IP2 of lightweight ...

Building a house has come easy nowadays because the technology of mankind has reached an advanced stage of technology in science and research. To build a house material election is critical based on the purpose it is built. There are 10 basic types of wall when constructing a house: poured concrete, masonry (brick or stone), stucco, synthetic or artificial stucco, wood (shingles, shakes or planks), metal (steel or aluminum), vinyl, asphalt shingles, tile (slate or clay) or fiber cement (planks or panels). All of them have their own advantages based on the purpose of the house it is built. One of the main critical of the selection of materials for building a wall is the location of a house. ...

This idea is for a multi-layer of solar panel shade for electric vehicles (EV). Most solar panel charging station design uses a single layer of solar panels as shade roof for electric vehicles during charging. But a single layer of solar panel shade roof has a limited power rating during charging. To overcome this, I have made a multi-layer design of shade roof. That means, another set of solar panels are placed directly above a set of solar panels that are charging an EV in order to meet the required maximum power during charging. So there are two sets of solar panels as shade roof that are charging an EV. The upper and lower solar panel shades or shade ...

This project is about building a new mechanism that can sort live aquatic animals in dams from intake canal without imposing any health risk on the animals and with lower operational cost than existing fish screen configuration to prevent them from damaging the power plant and themselves. This is done by using a sorting mechanism. Most aquatic species that exist in stream of dam are on the upper level of the water. So, this mechanism uses this advantage. As seen in the diagram, the green part which is the sorting mechanism is installed in the intake line. This structure can collect the upper part of the intake water and directed or discharge it to the river which is after ...

Today, the demand for sustainable energy is crucial for tomorrow’s bright future. Tokamak-style machines claim to be futuristic superconducting batteries but, no perfected model has been achieved. The biggest limitation they’ll have when perfected is being stationary. Deep space exploration has 3-major challenges that need answers first; electrical power, shielding protection, and cheap reliable propulsion. My diamagnetic field engine (DFE) transforms into a superconductor to create power, protection, and propulsion. DFEs use 2-diamagnetic field capacitors (DFC), 1-NDFC and 1-SDFC. Each DFC has 6 magnetized pieces; 1-primary (piston) and 5-barrier (1-release plate and 4-quarter circular segments). If the piston’s internal dipole is north, then it’s a NDFC, if the south dipole’s inside then it’s a SDFC. DFEs are supported by ...

This is a process of identifying plastic according to their polymers using the latest and state of the art technology and sorting them out in automated manner. Perhaps this is the first of its kind.

LIBS and FTIR are laboratory tested and commercially applied. We just have to integrate the LIBS and FTIR device, more likely separately , in a machine to identify the type of plastic with automated movement during identification and separation process.

This is a development or improvement in the collection and sorting of plastics compared to manual means of separating different types of plastic since the identification of type of plastic is done quickly within microseconds only or in less than a minute for hard to determine ...

This is to use the middle area between two hulls of a catamaran (bi-catamaran) in order to efficiently scoop out the plastics in the ocean without having the ship to stop by placing a net (net is a piece of open-meshed material made of twine, cord, or something similar, used typically for catching fish or other animals) with its bottom portion submerged on the surface of the ocean in the front area of a catamaran. A net is usually used to catch fish but this time we are going to use it to scoop out plastics in the ocean. The net may be customized so that the net will have a pouch in the rear that will serve as ...

ecoSPEARS is a cleantech venture committed to green, sustainable remediation technologies for the permanent extraction and destruction of PCBs, dioxins, and other toxic chlorinated contaminants from the environment – forever.

71% of Earth’s surface is covered in water, of which only 3% is freshwater. Of that, less than 1% is accessible for human consumption. Freshwater is a limited resource and environmental toxins such as PCBs contaminate our water and the fish we eat.

In 2014, an EPA study found that 94% of fish tissue sampled from US waterways contained PCBs and other toxic chemicals. PCBs are now considered the most widespread contaminant in the world being used by every industrialized nation. Once PCBs into our waterways, they virtually remain ...
